Wofford Scholars FAQs


Being a Wofford Scholar means you have been nominated by your high school counselor because of your academic record and leadership potential. You will participate in Wofford Scholars Day, where you will have a group interview and sit in on Wofford presentations.

If you meet the nomination criteria of being in the top 10% of your high school class and score at least a 28 ACT or a 1300 on the SAT (CR+M only), then contact your high school counselor about getting nominated.   

Scholars Day 2019 will be announced soon. 

The interviews are conducted in a group setting. Typically, there are 4-5 scholars in a group being interviewed by a Wofford professor and other members of the Wofford community. The questions vary from group to group. This is a chance for you to talk about your activities and plans for the future. In addition, you may ask questions of the interviewers about what Wofford has to offer you.

There will be special interest presentations available for you and your parents to attend. This is a chance to learn more about academics, social life, travel opportunities and unique programs at Wofford. You will get to hear from students and professors and ask them questions on various topics.

Dress code is business casual. Dress pants, khakis, collared shirts, and nice blouses are all appropriate. Please note that these are suggestions and not requirements. We want you to feel comfortable. Since you will be walking around campus, please plan footwear accordingly.

Parents are more than welcome to attend. While you are in your interview, there will be information sessions available for parents to attend.
